# Why can't I take back a downvote of an answer?

Moving the mouse over the arrow says "klick again to undo", but when I try, I get a message that my vote is locked until the answer is edited. Why?

This makes no sense for me, I think it's a bug. If the idea is to keep people from toggling their vote a million times for their leisure (can't imagine why anyone would want to that, or whom it would hurt), this is a stupid way to keep them from doing so.

• @NightWriter I think you're right. ;-) – Karl Apr 18 '19 at 20:07
